Quick Update…

Hello everyone,

Just a quick update, I’m sorry for not posting for the last couple of days, but as you are aware I’m currently in Portugal spending some time off with the family. Saturday was not a good day at all…

Flight was planned for 6:30 in the morning and the rest of the day was already planned for loads of activities with the family. At 5:30 as I arrive at the airport, me and my wife realized we forgot our Passports… Yeah, the main thing we couldn’t forget, after our daughter, and we did… It takes 1H30 to drive back to our house, that’s about 3 hours drive to go home and back to the airport, so we missed our flight.

Instead of raging or stressing out, I’ve quickly bought other tickets for later same day, this time 9PM. Only major negative: one way tickets costed more than the original return tickets… But what else could we do?

We had more than time to go back home, spend the day relaxing and we got back with everything this time, so at 7PM we arrived at Stansted Airport ready to wait two hours and be back home with our family around midnight… Oh boy, could I be more wrong…

As we got through security, I check the flight and its 2H30 delayed. Yes, the flight that was supposed to leave Stansted at 9PM, was rescheduled for 11:30PM, and what a wait it was… Both me and my wife sick with a massive cold, Matilde also sick with a cold… While my wife had some sleep during the day, I had none and was up since 3AM… So you can imagine how it was to wait for over four hours with a 8 month old baby at the airport and then be on a flight for over two hours…

Since we got here, Sunday was a big long day as it was Easter, but Monday and Tuesday I’ve been mega busy visiting my grandparents and other family. Everyday we have lunch in a different place and dinner is the same, while we try to see both our parents so they can be with Matilde as much as we possibly can allow… What was supposed to be a “relaxed time off from two weeks of hell at work”, its rapidly becoming another week of no relaxing time and more like living hell…

But what better hell than be with family? None. I wouldn’t give it away for nothing. So, if I’m not the first posting information, or if even takes me a few days to catch up, I’m sorry about it, but I’m enjoying what time I got with my family that’s what is important for me.

Easter Break: Rest well needed…

Hello everyone,

Today I’m going back to Portugal for a break… I’ll be there for Easter and next week. Don’t expect me to post anything until Monday, I’ll be busy with Easter celebrations and family…

I’ll be back to normal posting on Monday, most probably not during the day, but at the end of it. I really need a break, I just had two crazy weeks at work and I’m exhausted, so I’m going to use this time to recharge myself and enjoy some time with my wife and daughter.

For those of you who are religious, I wish a Happy Easter, for those who aren’t, enjoy your Easter break and have fun.

eSports Corner – BTed72 Reporting for Duty

Hello loyal readers of The Daily Bounce.

My Name is Edward “BTed72” Arrindell. I am a massive fan of armor and military history since I ordered the American version of Tank Top Trumps card at 10 years old.  Been playing tanks for 4 years this month and this is my game here on the NA server. This is my “go to” game. The one that gets front of the line treatment and that I go back to even after those bad RNG days in game. The combination of history, gameplay and the constant urge to improve make this the one of my favorite all time games. This community of WoT, and all of those who are part of it, be it the newest player to the saltiest veteran, help make this one of the best games I have ever played.

One of my favorite parts of this amazing game is the WGL, in my case WGLNA. Over the past 3 ½ years I have attended 4 live WGLNA finals and each one has been unique and amazing based on the venues, the teams, and the matches they produce. I have tremendous respect for all who play this game of ours, but seeing what and how the pros play this game is always a learning experience.

I am honored and proud to announce that I will be covering WGLNA for The Daily Bounce. It has been an amazing journey as are coming upon the end of Season 2.  Playoffs loom next Thursday as teams fight and claw for the vaunted 2nd place and the bye past the playoffs it brings.

In addition to covering the results of each match night I will also be writing team profiles and reporting on the latest news and going on’s as we head into the WGLNA Final and then the Grand Final.  And if you are new to the e-sport side of World of Tanks, or have not given it much thought lately, join us as we get a deeper look at the teams and action of the WGLNA.

I am truly excited to join The Daily Bounce and look forward to getting to know the readers and community.

Hello everyone,

With great sadness I’ve received the news that Brian PoshybridVigneault, NA Streamer and member of FAME has passed away.

Poshybrid was doing a 24h Make-a-Wish Children Charity Stream, when about 22 hours in he started to feel unwell. From what I was able to find, he left for a smoke and never returned to the stream. Later he had emergency services called to his house and the stream was cut off. A friend of Poshybrid received the news while streaming and my good friend TcFreer announced it on Twitter.

Clan FAME also confirmed the sad news with an announcement on their Facebook page.


Sad news from Virginia beach , one of the most famous NA streamers and a member of our clan Poshybrid has passed away at the age of 35 , we just can not find words to describe how sad is this moment for all of us and for sure this game will not be the same without the legend.Maybe the saddest lines can not really be written , and the saddest thoughts can not really be uttered , let’s all hope that he is in a better place right now and may his soul Rest in Peace , he will never be forgotten … a person who stays in our hears never dies…


Poshybrid Twitch Channel got taken down temporarily because he was supposed to have fallen asleep. Many followers and friends were hopping he just had fallen asleep and everything was fine, unfortunately this was not the case.

To all his family, friends and followers, my deepest condolences on your loss. I wish he is in a better place, resting and contemplating us from the stars above.

His channel is now back online and you can get the latest update by typing !info. The latest update I got was the following.


Known info so far: Around 3:30AM CST Poshy said he was going for smokes and left the stream running, He never returned. around 11AM CST we were all still here assuming he had fallen asleep. around 19:00 Sorelor sees him online in discord and messages him. The person who responded identified himself as a detective and asked Sore to call him. Sore spoke wiht him, Called the Virginia Beach police department to confirm the detectives identity. The detective confirmed Brian had passed.


It saddens me even more to think he was 35 years old and leaves behind three kids. The World can be such an unfair place, where people who help others doing what they like the most are taken away from their loved ones… I can’t even imagine how my wife and daughter would feel if it was me.

My only wish now is that Brian is never forgotten and will always be remembered by his family and friends, because he will always live in their hearts.
